These resources were originally developed to support post 16 Applied Science specifications, and include:
- Extracting and purifying metals
- Impact testing
This worksheet looks at electrolysis, its use in the extraction of sodium and aluminum and in the purification of copper. Having completed it, students are then asked to set up a simple electrolytic cell to obtain pure copper and calculate and measure the amount of product deposited at an electrode during...
This resource consists of a self-study sheet and suggested practical activity. Students will:
- Use fully annotated diagrams to describe the structures of more than two metals and relate their structures to physical properties
- Carry out tests on samples of metals they have work-hardened,...
